PalmCow Field Officers Henni Rahmawati, Triwindana Hadi Putra, Aan Aryadi, M Abdul Rahim and Iriani Panjaitan joined their supervisory team as well as a number of trainers for a comprehensive induction and training program as well as a field visit. The activities were held in Pangkalun Bun, Central Kalimantan, on March 12-15 2019.

CropCow’s KalSel-based Field Officer Ridhona Edriantina also joined the PalmCow training activity given that CropCow activities in KalSel will have stronger animal production focus than in NTB, where the focus is more on scaling research.
